While returning only 15 cents for every dollar spent to taxpayers, the lower four dams on the Snake River are driving Idaho’s salmon and steelhead to extinction.
A very small group of people benefit from these dams, at the expense of most of us. They deal with outright lies and twisting the biologic and economic truth.

The PUDs that buy power from them will see a huge increase in price.
Never miss a local story.
This power will now go from being the cheapest in the nation to the most expensive.
